2019 Performer Profiles: Celine Saout

Associate Artistic Director Jamie Campbell introduces some of the outstanding performers taking part in the 2018 Southwell Music Festival.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming Celine Saout to the Southwell Music Festival.

1) Who are you, where are you based, and what work do you do?

I play principal harp with the orchestra of Opera North. Based in Leeds.
I’m also a member with contemporary music ensemble based in Birmingham, BCMG.

2) What music are you most looking forward to performing in Southwell this year?

I am most looking forward to performing Mahler 4.

3) What other things have you got coming up that are interesting in the next few months?”

Straight after the festival I am most looking forward to performing chamber music at the proms, Fantasia upon all the notes by Birtwistle. And beyond that, getting started on the new opera season with Martinu Greek passion and Britten Turn of the Screw later on.
